This is a small Connemara Pony Stud. We also have various pets, dogs x4, cats x2, and hens. Plus we run cattle to control the grass.
We need help with general farm work, for example mucking out yards/stables, controlling weeds, pruning/gardening, care of the livestock and handling/working with the ponies. Painting fences and general maintenance. Also we enjoy meals cooked :-)
The work does depends on the weather, the time of the year, so the jobs are varied. Maybe an opportunity to housesit if I do need to go away for a few days.

The property is located near Lake Karapiro, a place for Rowing and other water sports. Cambridge is in the heart of the Waikato and the Thoroughbred Horse Industry.
Cambridge is about an hour from both coasts, and Rotorua. Thus a handy spot to see many wonderful places in NZ.

My two children, daughter Kathleen 23, and son Angus 21,(who currently living at home) are busy with their own lives.
Kathleen works for Waikato Stud, one of the major Thoroughbred studs in the Waikato in various departments: foals to yearling/sales division, and lives at the stud, while Angus is at home and works locally in the agricultural contracting industry as a tractor driver and workshop engineer .

I am healthy out going and have traveled to various parts of the world, and enjoy sharing my home and interest with other people.
